Amongst our swag treasures were Text Bands from Hallmark. With some adult supervision and a lot of patience on the part of the wonderful Hallmark PR people, we got them programmed and on for some texting action.
The pic of my cute girls won us an adorable recordable book. Love it!
And they love that I get to read them a bedtime story even if I'm not here at bedtime.
Which happens maybe once a month. Or twice. I'm a wild partying woman.
My girls were changing their message after almost every single text exchange. We started out with the fist bump exchange but that inevitably turned violent and we then went for a more peaceful approach by gently bumping the text bands to each other. CG was happy since I had put my text band on my "rock hand". It was an unfair advantage.
The one thing that has stuck out for me is to send these with my kids to school. With Babs starting kindergarten this fall I'm having some mommy issues. And there are a lot of kids out there that are nervous about starting school and having a text band that they can push a little button on the side and have it scroll messages from mom and dad across the screen might make that adjustment just a little bit easier. Of course, Babs doesn't really fall into that category. She is counting down the hours until she can escape from mom's partially undivided attention and head off to a world full of kindergarten friends and learning. I will be the one scrolling through the messages from my girls on my text band. **sniff**
Not only are we lucky enough to have won enough text bands for an entire class room, but I also get to pass on the text band love to you. I'm giving away a pair of text bands to TWO lucky winners. And it's super simple to enter.
For your main entry, just leave a comment telling me which fashion text band is your favorite. Adding a compliment or two for me certainly won't hurt your odds. Also, telling me how adorable my children are is always good.
